    Here's the full break down of what I will be paying as a "new" customer. I stop being a customer on Friday and start being a new customer on Saturday. This only works really if you aren't under a contract or don't mind paying $10/remaining month to break your contract.

    Services Ordered: Monthly Amount
    Triple Play $134.99
    –Fios Digital Voice Unlimited
    –Fios TV Ultimate HD
    –Fios Gigabit Connection
    –$10 Special 36 Mo. Discount thru Apr 29, 2020
    –$10 Special 36 Mo. Discount thru Apr 29, 2020
    –$5 Special 12 Mo. Discount thru Apr 30, 2018
    –$5 Special 24 Mo. Discount thru Apr 30, 2019
    –$115 Special Bundle Discount Included
    Fios Quantum TV - Enhanced Service - $20 per month no charge thru Apr 30, 2019 Fee Waived
    Rent: HD Set-Top Box 2 $24.00
    $2 TV Equipment Package Discount Included -$2.00
    Pick Your Premiums - $15 per month no charge thru Apr 30, 2018 Fee Waived
    –HBO
    Estimated Monthly Subtotal $156.99
    Taxes, Fees and Other Verizon Charges $12.85
    Regional Sports Network Fee $6.39
    Fios TV Broadcast Fee $3.49
    Estimated Monthly Total^ $179.72
    One Time Charges: Charge
    Fios Setup $90.00
    Buy: Fios Quantum Gateway Router $149.99

    Break down: $180/month for first year, $200/month for second year and $225/month for third year (unless I play this game again!).
    Includes:
    gigabit Internet (F yeah!)
    Ultimate HD package with DVR and 2x STBs +HBO (gotta have my GOT fix!)
    Phone (which will never be used but oddly saves me money)

    The current price I was paying was $210/month for the same thing but only 150/150 internet!
    This breaks down to a savings of $60 over the next three years when including everything (discounts, fees, installation, and router).

    BTW, this was copied directly from my bill, so it's not speculation, this is my actual amount.

    Bees, where did you see that this applies to existing customers? It doesn't seem that way.
